During Nintendo's E3 2021 Direct showcase, Nintendo showed off a little more footage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

You can check out the new trailer down below. The game looks pretty incredible!

However, the vague release window was the big news of the reveal.

Breath of the Wild 2 Release Date

It was confirmed that Breath of the Wild 2 will not be releasing in 2021, with the release window set as 2022.

No more detail than that was given, so we don't know yet whether that is early or late in the year.

It gave us our first look at gameplay for the game, including what seems like the ability to attack from the skies.

Hopefully we'll hear more soon.
